An implant is the gold standard for replacing a missing tooth. The metallic implant can be surgically placed into the jaw bone (by a specialist) and a false tooth is then added to it a few months after healing. Implants can replace a single tooth or multiple lost teeth.
Costs vary but are estimated at $5000 – $6000 per tooth.
There needs to be good bone for this procedure so it may not be suitable for everyone. For example smokers have a higher failure rate. Bridges or dentures may be more suitable.
